JellyBlobs

Observed: 14th May 2010 By: Frank Brierley

Description:

Jelly-like blobs observed scattered within the size area of a dessert plate on grass in a cow field. Dificult to decide if the blobs had 'grown' from the ground to which they were adhering, or had been deposited. The blobs were greyish, slightly opaque, and somewhat angular. Can someone please identify what this is?

I too have found these - the nearest I've ever got is "star jelly" which you can google - no proper explanation however "why" or "what"
or try www.ispot.org.uk/node/101544 or http://www.bbc.co.uk/scotland/outdoors/articles/jelly/
